The Internet Press Guild (http://www.netpress.org) is open to reporters and
editors of any country, not just to US/Canada reporters. When you write a
letter to the editor in response to articles such as the one you quote in
La Repubblica, be sure to mention this fact.

The Internet Press Guild was formed by Internet-savvy working reporters in
response to the Time magazine CyberPorn article. (They were chased off the
newsgroup alt.internet.media-coverage when the SNR dropped like a
rock.) It's mission: to provide a place where working press can check
stories they are about to run regarding the Internet to avoid egg-on-face
syndrome.

The IPG contains a few people close to Linux development, so while a story
like this is a little beyond the original charter, a quick check would have
avoided the gaff.
